AllGov France Launched

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of AllGov France, the first expansion of AllGov outside the United States. Like allgov.com, allgov.fr is built on a foundation of hundreds of trustworthy, well-researched articles about a wide variety of government departments and their leaders. On top of this foundation we are adding daily news that concentrates on policy, but also includes a healthy dose of the odd and unusual.
 
AllGov France is headed by editor Guillaume Serina and staffed by a dozen freelance journalists, all of whom are French citizens based in France. Soon all content on the site will be mirrored in English.
 
It is our intention to continue adding AllGovs for the government of every nation in the world.
 
In June we will be launching AllGov California, the first of 50 state AllGovs.
 
We look forward to comments and suggestions from site users.

Trump Administration Secretly Closed Program Helping Refugee Children

The plaintiffs say the Trump administration stopped interviewing program beneficiaries and froze their applications; stopped issuing decisions to likely parole candidates; and stopped scheduling the medical exams for parolees to travel to the U.S.– all in secret. Yet it continued to accept money from applicants, including $100 for medical exams and $1,400 for each child’s plane ticket to the U.S. The complaint also cites Trump’s racist statements made during the 2016 presidential campaign.   read more
